Tony Ferguson is rigorously preparing for his bout against Paddy Pimblett, scheduled for December 16 in Las Vegas. He’s joined forces with David Goggins – a well-known former Navy SEAL, embarking on grueling cardio training…
Including Goggins’ infamous “Hell Week”.
Despite being in a tough spot with a six-fight losing streak, Ferguson’s choice of training methods have stirred up debate.
Figures like Daniel Cormier and Pimblett have questioned this focus, suggesting that Ferguson should concentrate more on fundamental fighting skills than on endurance training.
There’s a lot of very mixed reviews about whether or not that would be a good thing or a bad thing for him.
Clearly when the two of them are training together, David is not struggling at all, and Tony is struggling.
There is definitely some ground to gain when it comes to endurance. Dave isn’t even f*cking tired.
They’re going side by side with each other, and he’s like: “Who’s gonna carry the boats?”
He’s not even f*cking tired because he can go for days. There’s without a doubt some benefit in that.
Rogan also addressed the criticism surrounding Goggins and his training philosophy.
He attributed the skepticism to a lack of understanding and envy:
Weak men hate him.
Weak men and jealous men and people who don’t know him.
He gets misunderstood unfortunately by some people that I like.
They don’t look into it hard enough.
